Tiniest hummer I ever seen.
"Fall Reflections" 10-23-09 Reflections of the fall colors in a small river just as the sun went down. I purposely shot this scene with a small amount of shore line showing so I could flip the image giving the illusion of the water being on top and the tress being in the wrong place to give it some creativity. This image is SOTC  Have a Great Weekend Everyone ~Bill~  10-30-09 UPDATE: Thank You for all the wonderful comments & feedback on this image. Incredibly this image has become the #4 most popular photo on my web site in less then a week of posting it. WOW !!! Thanks Everyone !  ~Bill~
22.2.09 - Red Sky at Night, Photographer's Delight :)  There are times when I feel that sunset photos are nothing to do with me, all I do is point and shoot, Mother Nature and Uncle Nikon do the work! I am also lucky that less than 2 minutes walk from my flat I have this view, so when I see something developing in the sky I just grab the camera and stroll round to the old quarry. Last night was a pretty special sunset as you can see. This is straight out of camera, and there are 11 more in my Lincoln Sunsets Gallery here;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#478293082_9jPb4    As I said, not a lot to do with me as a photographer, but still damn spectacular :)
13.04.12 - The Blue Lady    These alien planet experiments have been something very very different for me, and although I have no intention of doing them regularly I would recommend that everyone tries at least one of them. The idea came to me when I was thinking of the backgrounds that are going to be added to the green screen in some of the scenes in our Dr Who movie, which is nearing completion by the way..     The model here is my friend Jo, who designs and makes beautiful dresses like these as Blue Lady Couture. Her work is well worth seeking out.     The basic principle of making these is very simple, just put one image on top of another and erase the bits you don't want so that it looks like one picture, but of course it isn't as simple as that :)    But the more you do the easier they get. I'd recommend starting with pics with a level unbroken horizon, those are much easier to join. Then gradually build up to more complicated images. Long hair and transparent materials are the hardest part of making these, and I've certainly not perfected that part of things yet!    IMPORTANT:- hopefully a final word on the thumbs downers and abusive anonymous commenters. Thanks for your responses to my comments yesterday, but it is very important that if you want this resolving you must contact Andy at Smug about it. As I type this no one has added to the thread I started on Dgrin, and unless people contact Smug they are likely to claim that it isn't an issue and continue to ignore the situation. If you have contacted Andy privately then thank-you for that, and let's hope that he is as good as his word and does something about it.
June 10, 2008      Feeling mellow...in yellow.  Squirrel update. These two were tired as they just had an orgy up in my oak tree. Yep, that's right. I couldn't believe it either.

It's still hot, and I didn't shoot anything today, so this is another shot from the archives.  And in an ultimate showing of laziness, I'm pulling it straight from one of my first galleries uploaded to Smugmug.  One more day until I'll have lots of new festival and river photos to choose from.
January 12, 2008    Lonely Horse-
I was on the mainland two weeks ago and visited an old town and found a street with these  houses from the 17th century
Inside the TicToc Diner - The TicToc Diner in Lake City, CO, is one of only a few surviving diners called Valentine Diners, which were ordered from a catalog.  Today was the day when I could have gotten the shot of a lifetime, but didn't.  After our father's day breakfast at I-Hop, we decided to take a drive over to the Woodland Park area in our old restored 1975 Porsche 911.  Apparently, everyone else in Colorado Springs had the same idea because traffic was incredibly heavy, although moving along at a fast clip.  We're tooling along at about sixty miles an hour and I have my camera in my hand, when out of the corner of my eye I see these big brown shapes.  I swivel my head to look and realize I'm looking at two large brown bears....eating on grass or some other plant.  They looked incredibly cute and rolly polly.  There was no shoulder on which to stop and the traffic was so thick that it was impossible to stop.  I was sick about it.  By the time we got back around, they were gone.  Oh, well, c'est la vie!
This is some type of Gecko.  My husband and my Mom, yep, that's right my Mom and I went to the reptile show in Cleveland.   I have been wanting a "Red Eyed Tree Frog" for a long time but didn't expect to find on there but was pleasantly surprised.  There are so many fascinating critters there and lots of fun taking pictures of them. Most of the sellers don't seem to mind.   I will probably go again next month since my grandson Gregory seen Lucy he wants to go.
smile pretty for the camera
June 30, 2011    Here's another one of the 'reflection' photos that I enjoy seeing and snapping shots of.  The red 1950 Ford pickup is reflected in the hub cap of a 1940 Chevrolet.  I thought it was pretty cool because the red accents in the wheel really set the red of the reflected pickup off nicely.  And don't you love those big white wall tires?    If you check this out in X2 or X3, you'll be able to see lots of neat details and reflections.    Both vehicles are owned by our friend Gary, and were at the recent car show.  To see a larger photo of the Chevrolet car, click here:    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_L6QVo/#1355627499_DRdWCbv    We are enjoying our vacation.  Sorry for the very little commenting I've been able to do, but I'll catch up as soon as I can.  You guys are posting some awesome shots this week!!    Best regards,  Linda
